The top two teams in the SEC square off at Mizzou Arena today. With a win, Alabama can all but wrap up the SEC regular season title, but with a Mizzou win, they keep themselves in the race and inch closer to the Tide. Who will come out victorious in this heavyweight SEC bout?
Second Half Notes
- This is the most impressive win the Tigers might have all year. It is a statement performance if they can polish off a 15-point win against a team that’s currently on the 1-line.
- Mizzou seems to be winning every single hustle play.
- The Tigers let Alabama back in the game when they continued to settle for threes. Although they’ve been shooting better recently, they can’t take 5 or 6 in a row and miss them all. It’s just bad offense that gives their opponents momentum.
- This implosion has been awful. No matter the final score, Cuonzo has to be upset with how his team has closed this game.
- To shoot from the line like Mizzou has today while Tilly is 3-3 is unacceptable.
- WHAT. A. BLOCK.
- For all of Mitch Smith’s faults, he makes plays that win basketball games, and that trait is uncanny.
First Half Notes
- The Tigers will need to keep this fast start going and try and step on Alabama’s neck early.
- Looks like Dru Smith is still really hot after his last game.
- This has been a complete all-around team performance. The offense has been efficient and the defense has played fantastic. If they can do this for 40 minutes, Mizzou can compete with almost anybody.
- The way Mizzou is running after a missed Bama three has been unstoppable.
- The Tigers are struggling from 3, but surprisingly, it’s not affecting them too much.
- That might be the best half that Mizzou has played all season. They never let Alabama get close to them.
